Holiday Gift Drive ends on Monday, December 13th!


Hi Franklin!


Thank you so much to those who have already donated to our annual HOLIDAY GIFT DRIVE, in conjunction with Village Bank- a tradition Franklin has been participating in for many years.


A gentle reminder that if you are interested and able to donate, there is still time. The FINAL day to bring gifts is Monday, December 13th.

If you are able, please consider giving to Newton families in need by donating new toys or games (unwrapped, please) for children ages newborn to 10. You can also donate gift cards to local toy stores, Target, or Newtonville Books. Target cards are especially popular with families! Please do not donate books - the Village Bank has found that books are difficult to distribute due to variations in reading levels.

You have two options for where to bring your donation:

-the drop-off box next to the front office at school

OR

-you can drop them off at Jackie's front porch at 167 Cherry Street.


Please contact Jackie at jsavageborne@bwh.harvard.edu with any questions.


As always, we know that folks are sometimes in the position to give, and at other times may be in need of assistance. Is your family in need of holiday gifts for kids? Please reach out to our Franklin Social Worker Daniela at mackinnond@newton.k12.ma.us at any time to get connected to resources.

Thank you as always- there is so much kindness and generosity in our Franklin family :)

Warmly,

Ranjani Paradise and Jackie Savage-Borne

Social Action Committee Co-Chairs
